Haryana government today ordered a judicial inquiry to probe the conspiracy behind the incidents which pushed the state into unprecedented “turmoil” during the Jat quota agitation that left 30 people dead and damage to property.
Replying on the adjournment motion in the Assembly after about 4-hour long discussion, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said, “Opposition leader (Abhay Singh Chautala) has sought (judicial inquiry) and we have ordered judicial inquiry.”
He said judicial enquiry shall be conducted to “completely unearth the entire conspiracy” behind the series of sad and unfortunate incidents which continued for 80 hours in the month of February.
“Some political people who wanted to serve their own interests did not want the meeting between government and Jat leaders successful. Names of some Congress leaders have appeared (behind violence) and Virender (close aide of Hooda) has surrendered and is in police custody. We shall try to elicit details from him about conspirators who instigated violence and arsonists. Because Virender cannot alone instigate on his own. There is a conspiracy which will be unearthed soon,” he said.
